If you come at me with your fists doubled, I think I can promise you that mine will double as fast as yours; but if you come to me and say, 'let us sit down and take counsel together, and, if we differ from each other, understand why it is that we differ, just what the points at issue are,' we will presently find that we are not so far apart after all, that the points on which we differ are few and the points on which we agree are many, and that if we only have the patience and the candor, and the desire to get together, we will get together.

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.


He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.


Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:


But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
